Well, I'm sorry I didn't post pics and footage from yesterday's demo sooner, but by the time I got back I was barely able to regurgitate my lager and cornish pasty never mind write up a post. Anyway, a couple of things: 1) it was an excellent turnout on very short notice and hardly any publicity at all; 2) after all the speeches and that, it was quite a good idea to have everyone surround City Hall chanting "Nazis out of City Hall - Smash the BNP!" I think Richard Barnbrook should have to hear that quite a bit over the next few months; 3) aside from Weyman Bennett being a good laugh, there was quite an interesting mood there. If I may put it like this, the organisers of Hope Not Hate may wish to reconsider their motto. This was hope and hate. I think people are fucking furious about the scum getting into the Assembly, and I would expect some very strong anti-fascist activity in the foreseeable future. Anyway, here's your pics and protest footage.
